She had been working with Tullow Oil in Kenya before she moved to a Chad-based oil company with offices in Nairobi.
"I have seen many of my friends in diaspora living large but the parents are suffering and living in deplorable condition. And as a way of saying thanks to my mother, I built them a house to motivate others to do the same also," she said.
The ceremony was attended by family members and a priest who presided over the handing over ceremony before sprinkling holy water in the house as a sign of blessings.

Ken built her mother a house in celebration for her 55th birthday after years of living in a poorly built mud house in Siaya county.
